Strayfolk - What Wouldn't I Do [BadPanda022]




This monday we're going to Sweden with Henrik Thoren and his group, Strayfolk. I would have never imagined to find a great swedish americana group, inspired by Bob Dylan, Tom Waits, Hank Williams, Steve Earle, Woody Guthrie in the country-folk area. It really sounds great to our ears.

The song released for Bad Panda has been a part of the live set for a few years and this recording features only a few members improvising an arrangement for a song that was then only a day old or so. Though attempts have been made to re-record it, it has a certain simplicity in this form that is hard to reproduce.

Strayfolk is an americana constellation found on along the south-west and wester seafront of Sweden. It is composed of lead singer and band songwriter Henrik Thoren, guitarist and banjonista Carl Malmqvist, batterist Torbjorn Loren, bassmaster Kalle Berlin, steel guitarist Anders Danielsson and piano whisperer Christoffer Ãdman. A primordial version of the band appeared in Umea in 2001 but it wasn't until 2003, after a move to Gothenburg that the current form came into being

Musically it has always been some form of americana or the other with the occasional drift into bluegrass and more traditional country. The self-titled debut album was released on Henrik Thoren's purpose built record label and currently the band is slowly recording new material.
